As an EMDR therapist, I have experienced successful outcomes for those who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress, obsessive thinking, and many other emotional conditions. In the past, with more traditional therapy, these conditions were time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring lasting relief for most types of emotional distress. Traumatic experiences can have an unsettling effect on our mental and emotional health for years to come.

The longer that disturbing memories remain suppressed, the more problems they'll create, possibly leading to severe cases of depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, and other debilitating behaviors. Other types of therapy may take years but not uncover the initial root of the suppressed traumatic event.

EMDR works with the root of the problem to overcome the painful memories and experiences that are keeping you stuck. This treatment leads to positive behavioral change in which disturbing thoughts and images no longer control your life.
